Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that I think you should be evaluated for arthritis . Since you have ankle swelling , back pain and chest pain arthritis may be a possibilty .I would like to know whether anybody in your family had arthritis or psoriasis . Also I would like to see your blood tests plus I would suggest you to get ESR ,RF, Anti CCP , HLA B 27 done to look for arthritis panel .

You can discuss about these with your treating doctor .

Take care.

Dear Madam,

Your Hb and Vitamin D is low but that would not explain the swelling over ankle joint . For that arthritis panel has to be done . For chest pain then it may be bony pain thats troubling you not the issue with heart as the cardiac reports are fine .I think you should see a rheumatologist for the same because it will be very difficult to say anything without examining you .
